United

Railway workmen came together to play football once and dared to dream. 
A dream to make something more of their lives.
That is Manchester United. 

The team lost its first ever competitive game 6-0 to Bolton Reserves. It got relegated in its second season of competitive football. In January 1902, it was asked to shut down because of debts. It didn't. 
Instead it came back up and won the league, a FA Cup and a charity shield 2years later. 
That is Manchester United. 

From 1922 to 1940, United were relegated again and again and again. Faced with bankruptcy in 1931, United were on the verge of disaster again. Instead, the team held on and fought on. Finishing 2nd in 1947,1948 and 1949; 1st in '52, 55 and 56.It won the FA Cup in 1948 and became the first English team to play in Europe. 
It had to wait 41 years for glory. That is Manchester United.

A plane took off on February 6, 1958. To greatness it seemed. And came crashing down. 8 players died. Facing despair and doom, the club fought on. It reached the final of the FA Cup that year. Without a first team, it plodded on and rebuilt. 

7 years later, as the fallen 8 smiled from above, the team won the title in 1965 and 1967. And the European Cup in '68.
That is Manchester United. 

For 25 years it waited to win again, getting relegated, losing Managers and players as rivals laughed. It didn't fall then either. A league title in 1992, a double in '93 and a treble in '99.
That is Manchester United. 

Blood, toil, sweat and tears.That is Manchester United.

How to English

English at its best

  • Often people ask how to improve in English. 
  • Most of the time, my initial reaction is to smile. 
  • This is an age-old question. A tricky one without any definite answer.
  • However, I still try my best to answer the question.
  • Mind you that my English language skills are not at par as the native speaker. But I know at least I can function well in English. 
  • So my answer to this question is just use it.
  • Yes. As simple as that. Use it. Use it when you talk with friends. Use it when you are at the mall. Use it even when you are talking to yourself.
  • The theory behind my answer is simple, without practice no amount of studying is sufficient. 
  • Practicing English in an authentic way is far better than just be in classroom learning it.
  • By using the language, one will have first hand experience in learning it.
  • Yes some might argue it is the hard way. But I believe anything that we gain the hard way will remain a long time.
  • Therefore folks, go ahead and use English and stop asking English teacher how to be good in English.

Off canning and punishment


  • Recently, a news on canning has caught everyone's attention. In it it says that canning might be treated as an offence in the future. 
  • As usual, Malaysian reacted in many ways. Some are angry while others sort to seek for more knowledge and explanation pertaining this issue.
  • The following day, the related minister came out with a long explanation on this matter saying that the media has quoted this issue wrongly. After all the heated debate, this issue is still up for discussion. Nothing is carved on stone yet. 
  • Personally, I believe that this is a sensitive issue for Malaysian. Yes, we want to protect the children, however we also need to 'protect' this old-but-proven practice in educating the children.
  • I personally do not agree with views saying that canning is one of the main means in teaching. However, canning should be seen as one alternatives to education (punishment). After all teaching while using force and brutality will create a crooked children.
  • Canning serves as a reminder to the children that no wrong doing should go un punish. 
  • Just recently, a friend of mine showed to me a text message conversation between him and a student.
  • This student has been missing several classes. When being reminded by my friend he dare to say that he doesn't want to come to class because somehow he feels that he will fail the subject. He even said "kau boleh bagi aku lulus ke?'.
  • Nothing to do with canning
  • This kind of student is the reason why canning should remain exist and practice.
